2016 Regional Development Australia (RDA) National Forum

On Tuesday 25 October 2016, RDA members were welcomed to the 2016 RDA National Forum which was held in Albany, Western Australia.

The theme for the Forum was ‘Reflections on success and looking to the future' which provided a broad scope for discussion on successful regional development activities and explored future opportunities. Mr Keith Greaves of Mosaic Labs was engaged to facilitate the day.

There were over 100 attendees, which included RDA Chairs, Deputy Chairs and Executive Officers from 50 of the 55 RDA Committees, as well as some state and territory government representatives.

The Hon Warwick L Smith AM, (retained to undertake the Independent Review of the RDA programme) also attended and provided an update on his review, and listened to feedback from attendees.
